DreamCloud Construction

  • DreamCloud’s construction is relatively complex.
  • This mattress has a True Tufted™ Cashmere Top that features hand-sewn tufts, giving it a Eurotop feel.
  • The first layer is 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam.
  • Next are two layers of quilted memory foam, totaling 1.77″ (4.5 cm).
  • A thin layer of natural latex (0.39″ or 1 cm) gives DreamCloud some bounce.
  • More memory foam, this time approximately 2″ (5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam, comes toward the middle.
  • Then a thin layer (0.59″ or 1.5 cm) of super dense, super soft memory foam comes next.
  • A thick (nearly 8″, or 20 cm) coil layer makes DreamCloud extra supportive. Individually pocketed “BestRest” coils in two levels of resistance are positioned in five comfort zones to ensure the right kind of support for the right part of your body.
  • The base is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super soft memory foam.

WinkBeds Mattress Review

WinkBeds Construction

  • Winkbeds’ construction varies a bit depending on the level of firmness, but here is a basic breakdown.
  • The cover is made of TENCEL, a fiber from the eucalyptus plant. This material has natural cooling and moisture-wicking properties, making it a good fabric for sleeping cool.
  • The top layer is 2″ of foam and has an almost pillow-top feel. This section incorporates a gel layer to help ensure cool sleeping.
  • A 2.5″ layer of foam-encased coils comes next. This layer has more than 1,000 coils, making support more granular. This coil count is similar to many $3,000-plus mattresses that you’ll find in stores.
  • Next is a thicker (8.5″) layer of coils. The thickness of this coil layer makes it extra supportive, making this mattress a good option for heavier folks. WinkBeds also offers a “plus” version specially constructed for heavier sleepers.

Construction Differences/Notes

  • Both combine foam and springs.
  • WinkBeds uses two layers of coils.
  • Both are durable because they use coils.
  • DreamCloud has a more complex construction.
  • DreamCloud has a Eurotop-like pillow-top, though WinkBeds also has a pillow-top feel.
  • DreamCloud is just a bit firmer and bouncier.
  • WinkBeds has more of a sinking feeling.
  • WinkBeds has a dedicated option for heavier people.

Firmness/Feel Differences

Both mattresses are relatively firm, but DreamCloud is a little firmer and its hand-tufted pillow-top gives it a different feel. The videos below give a sense of the mattresses’ differences. The WinkBeds video depicts its medium firm option.  

Motion Transfer Differences

WinkBeds is a little softer and absorbs motion better, but both options do a respectable job at preventing motion transfer.

Pick DreamCloud If

  • You want more bounce. DreamCloud is springier and more responsive.
  • You sleep on your stomach or back. DreamCloud is a little firmer than WinkBeds and is more likely to provide better support for back and stomach sleepers.

Pick WinkBeds If

  • You sleep on your side. WinkBeds has softer options than DreamCloud and generally has more of a sinking feeling.
  • You want options. WinkBeds lets you pick among different levels of firmness. It also has an option for heavier people.
  • You are on the heavier side. While both mattresses are extra thick and supportive, WinkBeds offers a model specially made for people who weigh more.

  1. 120lb athlete with back issues, side sleeper. 260lb also side sleeper. Hate feeling like you are sleeping in a mattress and not on a mattress.

  2. Help. 120 pound athlete with back issues, side sleeper. 260 pound side sleeper. mattresses tend to get what I call sinkholes on his side…trying first bed in a box.

  3. Which would be better :Dreamcloud or winkbed or Purple 3(4): or other? Currently have an innerspring with thick pillow top loved it when it was new. Both side sleepers. One 150 pound, one 250. Both sleep hot.

  4. I’m looking for an innerspring mattress most similar to older mattresses from the 80s which had no foam layers on top (they make me hot)! Newer mattresses which have foam layers on top are too hot for me. I’ve tried newer Serta and Sealy mattresses and they all have this problem and I’m not even hot-natured. I’m also a side sleeper and generally like luxury firm or medium firm and my current firm mattress has me waking up with neck pain every day. I’m at my wit’s end 🙁

  5. Although I like the responsiveness, DreamCloud is just too firm … a little more ‘cush’ would make it perfect. Would you recommend the regular WinkBed or the softer model?


  6. Hi Joe. Well…I went with DreamCloud…and it’s just too firm for me. So firm that it even ruins sleeping with my amazing Coop Home Goods pillows. I do like the responsiveness, but to me, there’s just no cuddly/cloud factor at all. So I’m wondering which of the WinkBeds you’re recommending above in comparison, the regular or the softer version?


  7. Which would be best for partners that weigh differently. #1 is a back sleeper that weighs over 250lbs, #2 is a stomach sleeper that weighs over 150lbs

  8. Between Dreamcloud and Wink, which would you say has a larger feeling sleep surface that feels more roomy for couples?
